Impact Analysis of Commuting Rideshare Design and Organization Efficiency Under the Duration of Public Health Emergencies
China Journal of Highway and Transport,2020,No. 04
To explore the feasibility and organizational efficiency of rideshare in commuting under the public health emergencies amid COVID-19, this study analyzed the public willingness and perception of exposure risk of different travel modes based on the online questionnaire for passenger travel preferences during COVID-19. The survey shows that about 71% of both car-owners and no-car commuters have a high willingness to share the ride with people from same enterprise; 60% are pleasured to offer rideshare service; 73% of no-car commuters show willingness to take part in the campaign. Rideshare in enterprise is feasible and available with great demand and solid foundation. Study on the driving factor behind rideshare based on questionnaire and binary Logit model shows that travelers’ subjective perception of travel mode risk has significant influence on the choice of rideshare. Considering travel mode preferences of commuters during COVID-19, this paper proposes the principles of mutual benefit, reassuring, shared appointments, shared ridership control, and requirements for level of service based on the health management of commuting rideshare mode. Through the rideshare simulation in different scenarios, the expected efficiency of the mode was analyzed. The achievement ratio of “N to 1” matching in commuting rideshare mode organized by the enterprise is greatly higher than that of “N to N” matching in commercial rideshare. For different rate of car ownership, there generally exists a proper staff size, namely about 200 people, corresponding to an optimum matching rate. What’s more, the rate of matching in distributed residence is lower than that in intensive residence. When the car ownership rate reaches 65%, the rate of matching can be high in both intensive and dispersed residence. During public health emergencies, we should explore the innovation in urban transportation organization mode to meet the demand for commuting mobility as well as manage and control the risk, thus providing reference for urban resilience governance.
